About Concordia University-David Hall

Located at 800 N. Columbia Ave. in Seward, Nebraska.

The History:

This is a Christian college that is affiliated with the Lutheran Church. It serves approximately 1500 students. It was founded in 1894 as Concordia Teacher's College. During World War I, the school was subject to some anti-German regards. Women were admitted to the college for the first time after World War I, but they had to live off-campus. Finally in 1932 they were permitted in the dining hall and then in 1941, the first women's dormitory was constructed.

David Dorm was purportedly built in the 1970's and bones were discovered at the building site, most likely those of Native Americans. The bones were turned over to researchers and were discovered to apparently date back to the 1700's. Permission was granted by the city of Seward, to continue building on the site, but all the remains discovered at the location had to be turned over.

In 1998, the college became part of the Concordia Univeristy System.

The Haunting:

Electrical equipment will occasionally turn on or off without explanation.

Observations:

Native American burial grounds are often associated with reports of paranormal activity, as are colleges and universities. In fact, dormitories are the most likely location to be reported as a site of paranormal activity. The fact that David Dorm was built on an Indian burial ground definitely adds to the story and makes the claims of paranormal activity quite a bit more interesting.

I was there when some of the graves were being unearthed during construction of the dormitory. One was of a lady whose bun of red hair was still intact. She was dressed in a floral print dress that I remember being blue. Another contained a man dressed in a civil war era uniform. This was determined to be a family plot of early settlers and not an Indian burial ground.
